25. “Cheap Thrills” — Sia
A simple song about hitting the dance floor. Because sometimes that’s all you need.
26. “Dancing on the Sun” — Bahari
This is a total summer anthem for kids who are out enjoying summer break. The lyrics are clean and the song’s got a totally hippy, kinda ’60s feel to it.
27. “One of Those Days” — Little Big Town
OK, so technically Little Big Town is a country group, but the line between country and pop is totally blurred nowadays and “One of Those Days” is so uplifting, we couldn’t leave this fun, kid-friendly song off the list.
28. “Firework” — Katy Perry
Common Sense Media says this “unusually clean” Katy Perry song emphasizes self-esteem. It’s profanity-free, has no references to sex or substances and encourages kids to rise above their insecurities, light their inner spark and let their colors shine. You go, Katy Perry.
